WHY OUR HEALTH MATTERS A Vision of Medicine That Can Transform Our Future

by | Read by Andrew Weil

Contemporary Culture • 6 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2009

"Really, this is more of an opportunity than a burden," Dr. Andrew Weil says as he considers the health-care debate in Congress. Weil believes in national health care; what he wants listeners to consider is what goes into the plan. Weil's thesis, delivered in his own rough, occasionally monotonous tones, is that integrative medicine, aimed at prevention through healthy diet, exercise, and stress reduction, should be integral to any legislation For the most part, that orientation turns the audiobook into a primer on integrative medicine that most listeners will find interesting. His proposals—from controlling insurance companies to banning the glamorization of smoking in movies—are likely to reinforce many listeners' existing views.
